Can you please give me the references from Guru Granth Sahib ji about the "promise" you have mentioned above? Give me the page numbers and the Shabads which state that.
I never said it is in the Guru Granth. It is my question!
"liberation of Soul or Jeevan Mukti", Please explain...
"By the way, do you have any doubts about Krishna, ganesha , Vishnu, Jesus, Muhammed. Even if no doubts etc. What are your ideas about them. I just want to have your ideas to have clear perspective in which you seek answers to your questions. Please give some details. "
Forgive my thickness, but I ‘m feeling very challenged, mentally, to comprehend your posts. So, I hope you don’t mind me clarifying few of your statements and chucking in few more questions. I find learning easier through asking innumerable questions. I don't expect to get all the...
“…day of mukhti is pre-ordained…” (Narayanjot Kaur)
In that case, what’s the point of having a Guru, or eleven Gurus, for that matter? One might as well live with a “devil may care” attitude, since the destination is pre-ordained!
One last thought -- a hide-bound secularist might want evidence for everything. Something tells me you are not that. So what's up? “Narayanjot Kaur”
I would like Roger to explain the premise and the intentions of his question in an honest and open manner which is the part and parcel of this...
Re: Enlightenment / Jeevan Mukthi?
“The questions, what is jeevan mukhti, how does one get it, who has it, and how do we know for sure that so and so achieved it, are common to the point of being mind-numbing. They may even be fruitless because the answers depend on tangible proofs of...
Thanks for the post. Personally, I find your expressed thoughts more like “wishful thinking,” rather than, the truth.
“A "jeewan Mukt" has achieved his ultimate "destination" while ALIVE...and he seeks to continue along his chosen "path"...and prefers PHYSICAL DEATH instead of...
"the Hundreds of THOUSANDS of MARTYRS...shaheeds.... are ALL KNOWN to the Sikh Community and they all achieved enlightenment while ALIVE. They are Jeewan Mukt. The Sahibzaddehs who died in Chamkaur and in Sirhind are Jeewn Mukt...the list is endless....leading into the 21st Century...1984...Blue...
Okay. Please allow me to re-phrase the question I originally posted. In the past 500+ years, has there been a Sikh, known to Sikh community, who has achieved enlightenment? (A Sikh friend of mine has told me that enlightenment is achieved in one's lifetime.)
Sure, I have no issues in changing the title! I just wanted to know if anyone else has ever achieved the enlightened state that Guru Nanak did? I thought Guru's wife would be the most likely person to start with, due to their proximity and relationship. One website goes as far as to say -
Sorry, I spelled it differently but here's the source where I read it:
"JIVAN-MUKTA in Sikhism the ideal and aim or objective of man’s spiritual life. The term is derived from jivan-mukti (jivan=life; mukti=release, liberation, emancipation freedom from bondage), and means one who has attained...
May I ask a question about Gurus, who were married? Did any of the Gurus' wife received enlightenment (Jeevan-mukti, I'm told it's called)? Actually, is there another being, besides the 10 Gurus, who has received it?
Hi fellow members,
I understand that "Guru" is very common address for a teacher in India and used in varied forms (Guru-Chela) - a music teacher is a Guru, a religious leader is a Guru, a person with specialized skill is a Guru, etc. etc. In Sikhism, I also understand that Guru can be only...
Dear Gurmit Singh,
Read your interview and curious to know how "Sikh religion continues to generate more love in me for its Divine Wisdom"?
Can you please explain further? I am assuming you love Sikhism (for it's teaching!)
